with this legislation. california, texas, new york saying we want to be able to do this but we also don't want to change our sales tax rules to have some kind of uniformity for these interstate transactions taking place, and that is what comes back on the shoulders of the congress because we have the ultimate responsibility for writing the law, related to interstate commerce and doing so in a fair manner not only for the brick and mortar businesses but also for the small businesses that are at this point in time i think still confronted with a very complex many thousands of multitudes more complex than a business in in your state or another state numbing what the state's requirements are and only having to meet the requirements of the state. so i commend the author of the legislation, and i commend all of you for trying to find a way to simplify. but i would urge you to work further to bring about more simplification in terms of a definition to each state that wants to purchase of in this, we have one definition. i would prefer to see one rate, three is better than 9,000 some. but i would prefer to see

, that goes to -- you were talking earlier about the texas senate race on the primary is on tuesday three there you have a sort of old-fashioned establishment conservative and a lieutenant governor dewhurst and ted cruce is part of this up-and-coming new dynamic winning of the conservative wing and the republican party. back in late may they had their first round of primary balloting and about one print 5 million people voted in that race and he came out on top. he wouldn't have 50% so under the texas law we have a run off system, and now we are expecting about 350,000 people. those 350,000 people are a part of what you just referred to as stand on principle. and that's why a lot of people think that cruce is the favorite right now. and what you get as sort of a primary to become more decided by just the narrow swath of the 350,000 texans who are going to vote tuesday i think you get a more hardened principal ticker but people on the right and the left and it makes the sort of bridging the divide a heck of a lot more difficult than it would be if you had more participation from all corner

.s. citizen in texas. gao has reported that the department has testified that we do not check americans seek and play terrorist against the terrorist watch list until they apply for a pilot's license. the lesson of 9/11 is that we need to keep people who seek to do us harm from being trained as pilots. we must remove the opportunities and instrumentalities of destruction. i've introduced a bill that would require everyone who seeking to be trained as a pilot, make sure that they have vetted against a terrorist watch lists. i hope my colleagues will join me in that effort. as we consider vulnerabilities that remain, i'm disappointed that we've not yet managed to achieve the screening of 100% merry tan cargo, before it reaches our shores. adam secretary, it's my understanding that you have recently signed a blanket to hear waiver of the 100% screening requirement. i do not understand how the department can ignore a statutory man date designed to close a loan vulnerability. search in the cargo before it reaches this country provides us with the best opportunity to remove instrumentalities of de
